Beetroot Latte Mix

  • 8 tbsp beetroot powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • Pinch chilli powder
  • 2 pinches sea salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

For each serve

  • 1 tbsp Beetroot Latte Mix
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/2 c plant-based milk almond, rice, oat, soy, and coconut will all work great here


  • Mix all ingredients in a glass jar.
  • To serve, add 1 tbsp of the mix to a mug, 1/2 cup of boiling water and stir to combine, then top up with hot milk. Or if you’re pressed for time, make like you would a regular milky tea - ~3/4 c boiling water and rest cold milk straight from the fridge. Drink and enjoy!
  • Dry mix will keep in a sealed jar in the cupboard for up to 6 months.


  • Make it sugar free - Omit the coconut sugar, and add a dash of stevia instead (to your taste - stevia is super strong so you won't need nearly as much).
  • Make it soy free - Simply use another plant-milk option - almond, any other nut/seed, coconut, rice, oat and organic soy are all fab options. Try my Almond, Coconut & Sesame Milk recipe here, or my nut-free Sunflower and Coconut Milk here for a homemade version.
  • Make it keto - replace the coconut sugar with steviamonk fruit or erythritol to taste.
  • You can also swap the coconut sugar to any other preferred sweetener you like - monk fruit powder or yacon powder as part of the dry mix, or when you’re making up with milk, coconut nectarbrown rice malt or low GI yacon syrup.
  • For a frothy latte like the one I've made above, blend the hot milk and water in blender before adding, or just add boiling water and cold milk for a quick instant no-clean-up option.
  • Do note, this is a bit of a thicker drink, so you might end up with a little bit of pulp to chew threw at the end - which is really a good thing since it means fibre!
